Feaster watched from the stands in Death Valley as Clemson beat Wake Forest, 56-7.

"It was good. The atmosphere was good, I liked that. The way they treat their recruits was great," he told CUTigers on Sunday.

Nearly every Clemson coach spoke with Feaster while he was on campus, including head coach Dabo Swinney.

"[Swinney] was just talking about coming to Clemson and being a big player for Clemson, staying focused and getting an education," Feaster said.

What stood out about Clemson?

"How they treat their players, by making them their own facility…letting them have fun and getting them tutors and help if they need it."

Clemson offered him during the first week of September.

"It was a blessing, just to have somebody watching and looking over me, knowing that they've noticed me and all the work that I've put in," Feaster said.

He added an offer from North Carolina at the end of the month. A visit to Chapel Hill could be in the cards in the not too distant future.

"I'm going to try to talk to the North Carolina coaches and see when would be best, possible [date]," Feaster said.

The 6-foot, 180-pound prospect didn't grow up rooting for one college team in particular.

"I just liked good football. Every game that comes on, I picked a different team to go for. I just like big plays and good games," he said.

A few factors will be considered as me moves through the recruiting process.

"Whoever has the best situation for me, education-wise, playing and having a good team."

So far this season, Feaster has rushed 85 times for 633 yards and seven touchdowns. He's also caught 16 passes for 224 yards with five touchdowns.
